Family Fun Starts Here
Looking for a way to keep the kids entertained now that school’s out? Head to The Shops at Columbus Circle. With restaurants that cater to children, shops loaded with pint-sized finds, and access to exciting experiences, this is one of the most family-friendly places in the city. Plus, this massive indoor space lets in the light and view but stays cool in the summer, so you won't break a sweat with the little ones.
Open Table recently unveiled its picks for the best kid-friendly restaurants in top summer travel destinations in America, and Landmarc was a winner in New York City. It’s no wonder. There's a kid’s menu loaded with tempting treats — tomato and mozzarella pizza, peanut butter and Nutella sandwiches. The restaurant also features MyPlate Specials that adhere to the USDA’s new dietary guidelines to help children make better food choices. With dishes like lemon and herb roasted chicken served with steamed broccoli and Mediterranean faro, parents will definitely be tempted to sneak a bite.
Another treat for tots: a visit to Crew Cuts at J.Crew. This is where the coolest kids in town like to shop. Whatever the season, J.Crew has just the look for young urban explorers. Have a picnic in the park in a striped top, jeans shorts, and glittery sandals. (Because what little girl doesn't love sparkles?) Ready for some museum hopping? Crew Cuts stocks breezy summer dresses and jumpsuits that are like works of art. And there are plenty of accessories to complete the outfit: colorful sunglasses, stylish hats, and necklaces that are mini versions of mom's.
One more advantage of coming to The Shops at Columbus Circle is that it’s well-located to enjoy some of the best family activities in the city. Central Park, with all the diversions that it has to offer, is just across the street. Stop by Bouchon Bakery and pick up the fixings for a picnic in the park — and don’t miss the baby macarons, which are perfectly sized for kids and a great bite-sized indulgence for mom and dad.
After you’re done shopping and dining, round up the kids and take in some culture at the American Museum of Natural History. This amazing museum dedicated to human cultures, the natural world, and the universe is just one subway stop away from Columbus Circle station. No wonder families love coming to The Shops at Columbus Circle: It truly is New York City’s epicenter of fun.
